While he isn’t being fined over his garden hoop house any longer, it doesn’t mean Village of Oak Creek resident Harry Gold isn’t continuing to be fined.

Harry Gold, left, and his son Craig stand near their covered hoop house garden in June. Gold is no longer facing fines from the Village of Oakcreek Association for the structure, however he is being fined for drainage and screening issues discovered during a recent inspection by VOCA.Now, the Village of Oakcreek Association has fined Gold for a drainage area and screening issues on his property.

Two months ago, following a hearing on his property, Gold said he met with VOCA representatives at his residence in the Village. In June, VOCA threatened Gold with fines should he not bring the hoop house structure into compliance with homeowners association guidelines. Gold, meanwhile, said he believed VOCA overstepped its bounds. Both later reached an agreement and the hoop house was allowed to remain on the property.

CEO and General Manager Tony Rizzo wrote, in an email Monday, Nov. 26, VOCA is eager to resolve the dispute with the Gold family.

“This goes back to the initial inspection of Mr. and Mrs. Gold’s Hoop House. Mr. and Mrs. Gold attended a hearing with the Architectural Review, Restrictions Committee and were very pleased with the outcome. Many ideas were exchanged and compromises made by both parties in order to bring the covered garden structure into compliance. There were several items agreed upon and dates for compliance were established. After an inspection last month there were several items that had not been completed,” Rizzo said.

    So tired of people willingly buying homes in areas with HOAs/CC&Rs and then violating them and/or working to dismantle them. The rest of us bought here because of the CC&Rs. If you don't like them, MOVE. Sell your house and go buy one in an area that doesn't have any regulations.
